On this feast of St. Joseph the Worker we consider the lily which is depicted in statues of the foster father of Jesus. Purity is of innocence. Worker labor across the world to keep essential services moving with some unseen by others. St. JPII worked the arduous task of a quarry mine. Laborers keep roads paved and roofs patched. The example of service is needed for every follower of Christ. So when we follow him we follow the way of St. Joseph the Worker.
